New Minecraft Clip Shows the 1.5 Update In All Its Glory

Last Friday we gave you all news about the changes that are coming with Beta Version 1.5 update of Minecraft. Here’s a little clip from Mojang themselves demonstrating the stats, achievements, and weather elements that’ll be added to the game.

That looks damned impressive, but I do hope the achievements get a bit more difficult than what was presented. Additionally, I’d love to see lightning rods show up in the game; Mr. Colaw and myself spent a couple of long weekday nights cultivating a 10×10 horticultural behemoth known as the “Megatree”, and I’d hate to log in one night to find it in flames thanks to a rogue lightning storm.

Still, cannot freaking wait for this one. I’m absolutely loving how Minecraft gets more and more ambitious with each update. NOTCH IS GOD

Allen is an utter whore of a gamer; he's completely open-minded to all games, be they AAA blockbusters or $5 casual children's games. His focus is on indie games specifically, valuing gameplay and ingenuity over sparkly visuals and ridiculous gimmicks. When he's not geeking out over the newest art game, he's out toning his sexy, sculpted shoulders while surfing epic 1.5ft waves, or having a good time with local, high-gravity microbrews.
